Do I need the U-Band for my male dog?

For most male dogs, the conventional belly band fits in front of the hind legs, behind the penis.

U-Band is needed on harness
On 20-25 percent of male dogs, the tip of their penis starts farther back between their legs. The U-band shape provides an easy opening so they can urinate freely.

U-Band is needed for harness.

Please choose from the dropdown menu below if your dog needs the UBand. *Female Dogs – Please choose “no uband needed”

Uband not available on XS size!

    We used this harness for my 16 year golden doodle. He blew out both of his CCLs and was eventually able to walk with the assistance of this harness. Without it we would have lost him much earlier. This harness is a total GameChanger for dogs with mobility issues. Worth every penny.

    Super helpful

    Rachel Martinez-Smith

    This product is so helpful for both the humans and the dog. Our 15 year old Old English Sheepdog has osteoarthritis and is unable to get up unassisted. We tried a sling for his hind legs which was very awkward as only his backend gets supported. The harness makes helping him (he weighs 75 lbs) so much easier and he remains comfortable during the process.I highly recommend this product for any dog with hind leg mobility issues.

    Very Good Harness

    Help Em Up was recommended to us by vets and rehab therapist. Old Goldendoodle, 60 lbs, losing strength in hind quarters. It’s very well thought out and built. Pretty easy to put on and adjust. Plus, there are videos and photographs that go into detail on its use.

    Essential for our old girl

    Krista Schumacher (verified owner)

    This harness is a lifesaver. Our old girl, a large rottweiler/shepherd mix, has bad osteoarthritis in her knees and seems to be deteriorating by the day. But she’s still a happy dog, loves to join the other pups and me on short walks, wags her tail, and gobbles down her food. She needs considerable help getting up and down from soft beds and can’t get on our bed, even with the extra-long and wide ramp we bought. She’s 75 lbs, and we’re able to lift her easily with this harness. She even wags her tail when my husband lifts her from the floor onto our bed. I don’t know what we’d do without this harness.

    We purchased the Help’em Up Harness for my Lab and it works great! We can actually get her in and out of the house with one holding the front handle and one holding the back. She is 85 lbs so moving her is tricky. This is a god=send for us. Size chart is spot on and its easy to get on and off. I highly recommend this product for any pet owner who needs help getting their pet up and down and in and out!

    We purchased this harness pending surgery for a torn ACL. It fits beautifully and we tried it out to find that it really makes lifting easier. Unfortunately we wont be using it for the ACL repair, but may need it for other things. Hubby and I are getting older and it has been a workout getting our doggie in and out of the car. This will definitely safe him some pain and us some pain too!

    I think this harness is wonderful! I have an older dog, with a fused hip and arthritis. She had gotten to the point where she could barely get around anymore. Our Vet recommended the harness and I’m glad he did! It’s given my dog a better quality of life, being able to move more easily with the help of the harness and me!

    Diane (verified owner)

    The Help Em Up Harness is very well made with strong materials while paying attention to comfort and fit. There are enough strap adjustment clips enabling a secure fit. Our male black English Lab was very proud wearing his new harness. We now have a secure harness with a strong handle to help him up and down stairs, up the ramp into our car and any situation where he needs help maneuvering.

    We are very pleased with the harness for our very arthritic lab. It makes getting her in the car and down steps much easier. We had tried those sling type devices but found them harder to lift her. The ‘help em up’ harness makes it much easier on us and our old girl. I would recommend this product

    Our Labradoodle is 14 years old and is having problems getting up after laying down. We were trying to help him up but bending down to lift his back hips was really putting strain on my back and my husband recently lost his balance and fell while trying to help the dog up. The harness was a perfect solution and was easy to fit and adjust. The front and rear handles make it much easier and safer to help him… We are very happy with this product. Thanks!!

    Added support

    Maryanne Menna (verified owner)

    My boy is nearing the end of his journey and is probably suffering from myelopathy. He is still walking but not well. After only one time, he knows the harness means we’re going for a walk. It’s much needed support when he needs it. It fits him well although I had to make a lot of adjustments. The chest fit him perfectly but he must have a small butt. Once I got it right it’s easy on easy off. It suits us both. It allows me to give him a quality of life as long as possible and that is most important to me. Thank you for your product.

    Game Changer!

    Lynn

    This harness is wonderful as it does not need to be removed for the dog to urinate. Game changer! Only caution is that the weight outlined was not correct for my dog. He required a smaller size to fit well and he was not on the border of the weight requirements. Something to consider. Otherwise, so grateful for this product while my big guy recovers from IVDD.

    We were at a loss how to help our Great Pyr following his second knee surgery. Our vet recommended this product, allowing us to help get our boy up from a “Sit” position – it was wonderful, and really did improve his recovery. Later we found that a strap on the chest strap had torn – we contacted the company, and found that there is a one-year warranty on the product. They quickly sent a replacement. Kudos to a company that has a great product AND honors the warranty!

    Great product, but am I doing something wrong

    Yvonne Orchard (verified owner)

    I purchased this harness for my 13 year old Redbone Coonhound mix. His hips are going & he has neurological issues, so he’s losing control of his back legs & paws. The harness is a huge help with getting him in & out of the car, straightening his stance and getting him up & down the stairs to the back yard (which he still is determined to use). Easy to adjust and to take on & off. He seems completely comfortable in it. Question though, the straps that come between his back legs ride up the middle, which can be a problem when he has to poop. Have I adjusted something incorrectly? May just be that he has a skinny butt. :-)

    We recently purchased this harness to assist our English Setter who has hip dysplasia. It is a little intimidating at first with all the straps and buckles, but once we figured everything out, it was great. Worst case scenario, the pet can be carried by its harness. It helps him to stand and can take most, or all the weight off his hind legs. He adapted to the feel quickly and does not seem bothered by it at all. On his bad days, we use it to lift him into the car or onto our bed. Would definitely purchase again.

    Extremely thoughtfully designed and well made. Our 13 y/o 50-lb English Shepherd he’d a sudden episode of vestibular syndrome. She was comfortable and safe in her harness. Easy on and off. It also became an important tool in her home physical therapy.

    We just picked our Major from extensive back surgery. He is a 90lb+ dog and this harness made the transition from the hospital/car/home ( up 2 sets of stairs), so much easier for us and Major. Can’t imagine how difficult this process would have been without it.

    Total lifesaver

    Joy Marie Washington (verified owner)

    My vet recommended this product to me. My almost 17-year old large breed dog is having trouble getting up in the morning and going up and down the few steps to leave our house. He fell twice and inured himself, even though we tried to assist him up and down the steps. This product has been fabulous. Now we easily assist him up and down the steps. He senses that, and he has less anxiety about steps. No new falls. I’d highly recommend this product.

    Saved us from a bad fall

    Jessica Collishaw-Press

    I wanted to leave a review because I just found myself recommending this harness to a friend. I have since lost the dog I purchased this for, he was a Doberman (33″ at the withers!) who ended up losing his back end to lumbosacral spinal stenosis (the nerves that make the back legs move started to fail). He was a huge dog and I am a tiny woman, and we lived in a 2 story house with old, narrow stairs. I bought the harness proactively, foreseeing trouble on the horizon. I’m so grateful I did. We had to help him down the stairs and having the handle on his pelvis really helped. I could hold him and the railing at the same time and we did well for months. My then fiance one night took a bad spill down the stairs with the dog and I feared we would have to leave him in the living room to sleep downstairs. I should have given into that, but didn’t want him to be alone. One morning soon after the dog refused to go down the stairs because he had no confidence that he wouldn’t fall. I really felt for him. By then we had been using this harness daily for walks and lifting support, but this was the real test I had bought the thing for: we were stuck upstairs and I could not carry this dog down. Enter the shoulder strap, which basically turned him into a 4-legged duffel bag. I’m lucky he trusted me and wasn’t a squirmy dog. I needed both feet for the stairs and both hands for the walls and my poor old dog dangled nervously from the shoulder strap. It was a tense few minutes but we got down safe without any mishaps and I could have cried I was so grateful to have had this thing on hand when I needed it. When we finally had to put the dog down I gave the harness away, but I will probably own one for every dog we have as they enter seniorhood. As long as the quality of this product never degrades, they will have a lifelong customer in me. I cannot recommend this product enough. Thank you, Helpemup Harness, you guys really did me a solid in the making of this product.

    Great Product

    R Jackson

    I have a 12 year old German Sheppard that needed to get to the vet. Unfortunately his back legs were not allowing him to get into the car. I tried a couple of other solutions including ramps with no luck. I was able to get this harness shipped overnight and was able to try it out on him the night before the appointment so he would get used to it. The next morning I was able to get him hoisted in the car on the first attempt. At 120 pounds that was was quite an accomplishment. My vet had positive comments about the harness and that it even helped them with the exam.

    I don’t think I would have been able to get him to the vet without this harness. Thanks again.

      Thank you for reaching out to us.

      We do not recommend the use of bleach or other harsh detergents but mild soaps work great. Urine odor can be a problem so try to clean regularly. White vinegar and water in a 1 to 3 ratio works pretty well to cut the smell. There are also commercial cleaners available that can help to cut odor.

    AMAZING!
    Just wanted to share how great this has been for our 12.5 year old mixed breed with hip dysplasia and arthritis. It was a last ditch effort to help keep him mobile and it has been wonderful for him. (I had even inquired about the return policy because I wasn’t sure he was going to make it until we got the item) He’s been so happy too, complete with a wagging tail that we hadn’t seen in a few weeks. It has been well worth the price tag and I would highly recommend.
